I’ve mentioned that we live in San Francisco and are surrounded by AMAZING Asian cuisine, so we’re pretty picky about our Chinese food. At first I thought ground turkey in an Asian-inspired dish seemed peculiar, but then I remembered having something similar that had ground pork instead. Pork. Turkey. What’s the difference, right? I’m so glad I decided to try these Chinese Green Beans with Ground Turkey because this meal was delicious! To make it even better, this dinner takes less than 30 minutes to prepare!
- 1 c. medium grain rice, uncooked
- 1 tbsp. sesame oil
- 1 small bunch green onions, sliced thin
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or crushed
- 1 lb. ground turkey
- 2 tbsp. chili garlic sauce
- 2 tbsp. hoisin sauce
- 1 tsp. crushed ginger
- 1 lb. washed and trimmed green beans (or Chinese long beans if available)
- 1 tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 tbsp. seasoned rice vinegar
- Start rice cooking in lightly salted water.
- When rice is about 15 minutes from done, heat large skillet over high heat. Add sesame oil, and sauté green onions and garlic for about 2 minutes. Stir in ground turkey and sauté 3-5 minutes, until meat is mostly cooked. Crumble meat as much as possible.
- Stir in chili garlic sauce, hoisin sauce, and ginger. Add green beans and soy sauce, and stir to coat. Continue cooking over high heat for 7-9 minutes longer, stirring frequently, until beans are slightly tender.
- Stir in rice vinegar, and cook one minute longer. Serve over cooked rice.
